The Disappearance of Keith Whitmore


Keith Whitmore has been missing since April 10th, 2018. The then-48 year-old lived in Greenville, Virginia at the time of his disappearance. Keith's family members describe him as a single man who preferred to live a quiet, secluded life. He lived in a secluded area of Greenville and did not socialize often, especially after he retired from his job as a maintenance mechanic. 

Keith's family members have actually not seen him since June 2015. At that time, Keith's father was on his deathbed, so Keith gathered with his family members to say goodbye. Keith's older sister Kim stated that she tried to keep him touch with him after that, but he would only respond periodically. During the spring of 2018, Kim decided to stop by Keith's house with her grandsons to see if they could visit. When she arrived at his house, it appeared he was not home--even though the light on his front porch was on and his car was parked in the driveway. 

Over the next few weeks, Kim and their other sister continued to stop by Keith's house. Each time, they were greeted by the same scene: front porch light turned on, car parked in the driveway, but no sign of Keith. In May 2018, Keith's sisters asked police to conduct a welfare check--but the police were also unable to get in touch. The following month, Keith's sisters noticed that his porch light had finally been turned off. They then noticed that the power at Keith's house had been turned off altogether. While digging around his house, the sisters also discovered that Keith's mortgage had not been paid in months. After this discovery, Keith's family members filed a missing persons report.

Throughout the investigation, police determined that the last known sighting of Keith was last seen on April 10th, 2018, by an acquaintance who saw him at a store in Greenville. He has not accessed any of his bank accounts since then. He also has not paid any of his bills, which is out of character. After searching Keith's residence, it appeared that he had left the house at some point in April 2018, but had every intention of returning. He left behind all of his personal belongings except for his wallet and cell phone--which indicates that he only intended to step out for a short period of time. 

Investigators conducted searches in the area near Keith's house and some of the surrounding areas, but the searches did not turn up any clues to his whereabouts. He remains missing today. If you have any information that could lead to his whereabouts, please contact the Augusta County Sheriff’s Office at 540-245-5333.
